7:15 am
>> he's going to likely vote for the majority which would be a 4 of of-3 majority, now, the question of what that would be is the big question. >> reporter: the ruling could only affect the university of texas, demand more transparence for other universities nationwide, or outright ban affirmative action as unconstitutional. >> that is probably most likely going to happen because it would be a pretty big change but it could happen. >> reporter: with a written decision on affirmative action expected in this term they say it's back to the drawing board for the remaining 7. >> very few leaks come out of the supreme court which is a good thing, but this changes everything about what they're doing. . >> president obama gives his strongest criticism yet about a candidate running for president speaking with reports on tuesday
